    Winemaker's Notes:

    Aromas of toasty oak, cassis and smoke. Cascades of red and blackcurrant fruit on the palate. Medium-bodied and classically structured with good density. The Cabernet fruit melds seamlessly with the Malbec, creating a well-structured and balanced blend with moderate tannins and a lengthy finish. A wine that combines real class with excitement.

    This Cab-lovers blend will pair well with any Bordeaux or California Cabernet-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. Can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Luca Beso de Dante is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon from Vista Flores, Altamira and Agrelo that is aged for 14 months in French oak, 70% new. It has a billowing bouquet of dark cherries, cassis, bay leaf and a hint of espresso that is beautifully defined. The palate is medium-bodied, with tobacco infused black fruit tinged with black pepper and a touch of green bell pepper. There is a welcome touch of austerity towards the finish that begs another sip, with tobacco then lingering on the aftertaste. This is superb.

    The Wine Advocate

    Good red-ruby. Aromas of black cherry, cassis and strong chocolatey oak. Dense, suave and nicely delineated, with a restrained sweetness to the blackberry, licorice and violet flavors lifted by spicy oak. Finishes firmly tannic and long, saturating the palate without leaving any impression of weight. This would be a terrific match for red meat.
